Move-Over Law Approved 07-08-05

The Legislature has adopted tougher penalties for motorists who fail to slow down or move over for police or emergency vehicles. Motorists who don't move to another lane when approaching a standing emergency vehicle on a multilane road or slow down while on a two-lane road would face a traffic infraction and a $250 fine. House Bill 288, which is sponsored by Reps. Ray Rapp (D-Haywood) and Bill McGee (R-Forsyth), updates an original law approved in 2002, which made the violation a $25 fine, with $100 in court costs. A motorist now also could face a low-grade felony charge and a six-month driver's license revocation if a first responder at the scene is injured or dies. If the accident leads to property damage of at least $500, the driver would be guilty of a misdemeanor. The House gave final approval to the law, which now goes to Gov. Mike Easley for his signature.

Hello fellow fisherman,

Did you know that 16% of the U.S. population goes fishing at least 16 days a year?

Did you also know that over 75% of the nations fishermen do not fish during "prime time"; fish feeding hours?

Those precious few moments before twilight can be absolutely magical. Even up until 11pm at night, the largest predators of any species feed ravenously.

Don't believe me? Check out Daniel Eggertsen's story, and a picture of a couple of his catches here : "Evening Secrets plus more"

I want you to do me a favor and try it out so I can see what you think of it, and if it works for you as well as it did for me.

You will be one of the first to try it out.

Gone Fishin',

Neil
